You know you've had a great time when......

You're still sore the next day and grinning from ear to ear!

What a day I had yesterday.  Such wonderful people, such great fun and guns.... lots and lots of guns!

This time, I was determined to not shy away from shooting anything that wondered into my hands and and wow, am I glad for it!  I even took the opportunity to shoot the .50 Cal. that was there.  Oh I hope that thing makes another appearance at a future blog shoot!  I was still grinning from shooting that gun this morning!

Rabbit was kind enough to let me shoot his FAL and I have to say.....  I loved it!  That gun was so accurate, I was amazed.  That is a MUST have!

Another MUST have for me is the M1 Gerrand.  Oh god, that rifle literally sang to me and called my name when I shot it.  Thanks Kevin for letting me give it a try.

Bob S was kind enough to put his lovely Mosin Nagant in my hands and I really enjoyed shooting that one as well...    another MUST have.

Then Nick the blogless let me fire his AR15, first with .22 cal. then with what I think was .223, the interchangeable bolt is a must have feature when I finally talk KX into letting me buy an AR of my own.

And last, but certainly not least, I was reunited with Borepatch's Enfield which was as awesome as I remembered and yes an Enfield is also on the MUST have list.  The best thing that Borepatch brought with him this time was the lovely Mrs. Borepatch.  It was really great meeting her and I really like the fact that she enjoys a good margarita.

So, I'm sitting here looking at one nasty-assed bruise on my upper arm where yet again, I didn't have a gun (this time hubby's 12 guage, from which I was firing Sabot Slugs) seated properly.  I knew it was wrong at the time, but pulled the trigger anyway.     My bad.  It looks much worse than it feels though.

I was so overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone there.  I met some really great people and I really hope that we will all get together again.  I know that the next Dallas area event, hubby and I will surely make it.

Thank you so much US Citizen for hosting, it's a time that I will never forget.


  1. If you ever hold a gunny field day down your way, you'll have to let me know. I'll bring a couple AR's that will make you and kx smile!

    If you decide to build or buy an AR someday, let me know as well, I'd be glad to help you hunt down the best deals on one. They're great rifles and are very versatile, not to mention they make Sarah Brady cry!

    It was a great time, and I'm glad to have met both of you!
